MYTH: Turning on the Ceiling Fan makes rooms colder

This is partially true. It can use the ceiling fan in conjunction with an air conditioner to make the room feel cooler. This benefit is only applicable if you are present in the room. Turning on the ceiling fan or any fan in the room will only make it more expensive.

We recommend this: Set the thermostat to 72 degrees and then turn on the fan in the room. The fan should cool your skin and make the room feel cooler.

MYTH: Cooling a room faster by turning the thermostat below the target level

Air conditioners only work at one speed. The thermostat set below the target temperature will make the conditioner work harder. You can save money by setting the thermostat at your desired level or a few degrees higher and adding a fan to your occupied space.

MYTH: When you are not at home, turning off the air conditioner saves money

It is different from turning on the lights when you turn on your air conditioner. The air conditioner will work harder to cool your home if you turn it off before you go to work in the heat of summer. It is better to raise the thermostat by a few degrees.

MYTH: Filters need to be changed once a year

it can change air filters in many ways. However, there is no universal rule that will work for all. The rule of thumb is to change your filters once per season. Filters can collect dust and dirt, which restricts airflow and makes your unit work harder. Dirty filters can also contaminate your indoor air. You could be exposed to allergens and poor-quality air if you only change the filters once a year.

Myth: Summer Cold Caused by Air Conditioners

The temperature or air conditioner does not cause a cold. You can get sick from germs, bacteria, viruses, and other microbes. Many microbes thrive in cooler temperatures, and allergies can flare up from dirty filters.
